How has your own art work influenced the way you teach?

“I encourage students to focus on enjoying the process a lot more now. Kids want instant gratification; they want to see that surface go from blank to full in one class period but that’s not how it works (most of the time). Modeling after my own workspace at home where I keep a variety of materials within reach, I encourage a work space where kids have access to materials and I encourage them to make the materials work in a way that suits their needs.”
